Whiskey For Water Benefit

June 16, 2018 @ 5:00 pm - 9:00 pm


As we all know, this year was not a great snow year, and Oh Be Joyful is a creek that depends on a solid snowpack. Not having enough water to run the race is a problem, but we want to make that an opportunity to address some of the issues in our watershed. So instead of just cancelling the race, we are going to host an educational and fundraising event to benefit our watershed. There will be free food, beer and whiskey provided by The Brick Oven, SKA Brewing, and Deerhammer Distillery, a few non-profits will come and speak about their current issues and how we can get involved, and there will be a raffle with fabulous prizes to benefit one of those non-profits. Check out our event page on Facebook here

Since the race is canceled this year, registration is closed. Keep your eyes peeled for registration for 2019!  There is no need to register for the benefit this year, it is free and open to the public!


Even though we can’t run the race, we still need volunteers to help us put on our fundraiser. If you’re interested in volunteering please click here to fill out the form and we’ll get back to you soon!
